After a brief hiatus, we’re getting back into the groove of celebrating two years of green gossip! And what better way to jump up on the giveaway train than to offer a hybrid-electric bike from iZip!
Now, I don’t hate hills. After all, for those looking to get back into shape, bike+hill is a excellent combo for kicking your ass. Unfortunately, when I’m riding to work, the last thing I need to be doing is arriving sweaty and out of breath. That’s why I’m currently in love with the latest incarnation of hybrid-electric bikes that can move your butt up those nasty inclines without the need to go all “Lance Armstrong” on your commute.
This bike from iZip called the Via Mezza is esentially a ‘Twist N Go’ model with a top speed of 15mph. When fully charged — coupled with normal pedaling — it has a range of about 18-24 miles. It comes with a battery and charger and lots of other details that you can read more about here. I would also encourage you to check out iZip’s full line of hybrid-electric bikes — the Via Mezza is just the beginning of a wide range of bikes to suit your needs!
Want to win? Simply leave a comment below telling us how you’ve managed to or want to green your commute. Perhaps you work from home, maybe you take the bus, walk, or ride a bike. Either way, impart some of your expereiences! One person will be chosen at random to win! Complete rules and giveaway details for this contest are available here. Good luck!
[Update: For those not familiar with our contests, this one will run for three days until Saturday, October 11th at 12pm PST)
